from Vital Weekly #423
The split release with Odal brings him [XV Parowek] back to his more known noise material, although maybe less refined than his release 'Kilogrammy' (see Vital Weekly 393). There he played objects and the resultant recordings were filtered and changed. Here he seems to operate in a more electronic way. Less Brume or Merzbow and more Odal, I guess. And who might Odal be, you may ask? Odal is Peter Zincken from The Netherlands and he plays around with low-level since 1986, if I am not mistaken. He used to run various cassette-labels and now off and on releases CDRs and works with De Hondenkoekjesfabriek. His piece is lenghty excursion into Peter's personal low-fi, home altered electronica. Putting on simple effects like a delay, he creates his own world. Outsider music from someone is on the inside scene wise, but outside enough to make his own statement for nearly twenty years now.
